Goatfell, from Corrie
This circular route to the summit of Arran's highest peak is quieter than the Brodick approach and suitable for more experienced hillwalkers. It explores the mountain's magnificent north ridge as well as the adjacent, dramatic peak of North Goatfell.
Very rocky mountain footpaths, crossing some very steep terrain with scrambling in places. Any more difficult scrambling can be avoided.
Bus to Corrie.
